and the republican party writ large. but the one other thing they're polling on, they're also polling on the nra. yes. that is the one other thing worth polling favorables and unfavorables in a major election in america right now. because this is not just one of the first elections that is going to take place after this last presidential race. this is the election that is going to be taking place after sandy hook, after what happened in newtown. so you better poll on the nra. and in massachusetts throws, the unfavorable rating for the nra is 13 points higher than the favorable rating. the nra is deeply underwater. in other words, at least in this race, at least in this state right now, the nra is poison. you do not want to be associated with the nra, right? in american politics, it is worth asking in how many other election series that going to be the case as well. this massachusetts senate race is not going to be the first election that we have after the presidential. this is one that is happening even sooner. it's in illinois in the second district there. jesse jackson jr. quit his seat there, hold
message was simple. voters must tell their members of congress that they do not believe the nra's deception on gun safety and their ridiculous suggestion that the president is coming to take your guns. >> tell them there's no legislation to eliminate all guns. there's no legislation being proposed to subvert the second amendment. tell them specifically what we're talking about. >> his speech echoed a super bowl commercial that pointed out the rank hypocrisy of men like the nra's wayne lapierre who at one time was a vocal supporter of background checks. >> we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory, instant criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show, no loopholes anywhere for anyone. >> the nra's most public response to this onslaught of factual statements was on sunday when it trotted out wayne lapierre to yet again repeat the same inaccurate and ill-informed statements to which the president was just referring. >> turn this universal check on the law-abiding into a universal registry of law-abiding people. >> there's no indication -- i understand you're sayi
% of the people supported it including n.r.a. members. it seems to be a bit of a clever tactic to give some moderate politicians a way to try angulate on this issue so they can say i'm not for the assault weapons ban. that's extreme but i do support this lesser measure even though the irony that something like expanding background checks has the potential to affect a much broader potential policy impact in terms of the number of gun crimes. >> you said a number of n.r.a. members are in favor of the background checks. we haven't heard the n.r.a. say they're in favor of it. are they backing off on the background check issue? >> at least in public, they have not backed off at all. this is a bit of a flip flop for them. back in 1999 the last time this issue was debated, the n.r.a. did come out in support of expanded background checks. this time they've taken a hard line. they say the reason for that is that they've studied the issue and concluded that background checks don't work. but in terms of their public posture, the n.r.a. has take an hard line -- in fact, there was a commercial run durin
's not a question of arms. it was a meaningless ban. >> the nra is a powerful force, not afraid to publicly push back against pressure. >> since when did the gun automatically become a bad word? >> with the recent shooting of 27 in newtown, connecticut, including 20 children inside their classrooms, emotions are high. >> the nra has blood on its hands. the nra has blood on its hands. shame on the nra. >> everyone agrees america needs to be a safer place, a place where children can go to school without fear of being shot. the question is, how do we get to that point? and that is the question we hope to get a little closer to answering tonight, or at least understanding tonight. to help us, we have 310 million, an estimate of how many guns there are in the united states right now. also 30,000, that's roughly how many americans will be killed by guns each year. and finally, 27 words that you probably recognize, a well regulated militia being necessary for the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed. that's the second amendment. 27 words, very
the nra. today, president obama took his fight for gun safety outside of washington. calling for action. debunking the nra lies and making sure everyone knows we can't wait for change. >> we don't have to agree on everything to agree it's time to do something. if we've got lobbyists in washington, claiming to speak for gun owners, saying something different, we need to go to the source and reach out to people. directly. >> there's no legislation to eliminate all guns. there's no legislation being proposed to subvert the second amendmented. there won't be perfect solutions. we're not going to save every life. but we can make a difference. and that's our responsibility as americans. >> that's the reality of this gun debate. but the nra is pushing a fantasy. the head of the nra was pedaling misstatements on fox when he got called out for it, including his tv ad criticizing security for the president's daughters. >> mr. lapierre, do you regret putting up that ad? >> the point of that ad is this. it wasn't picking on the president's kids -- >> it mentions them. >> the president's kids are sa
. today the n.r.a. is beginning phase two of a $350,000 ad campaign. it includes print ads like this one that will run in five states targeting north carolina senator kay hagen. the ad reads "will obama's gun proposals work? his own experts say no." the debate continues at the national level, and states are moving quickly on gun legislation, but in opposite directions. today the new jersey statehouse will vote on 20 bills, including banning magazines over ten rounds, banning armor-piercing bullets, and requiring universal background checks. on monday the colorado statehouse passed a bill passing universal background checks, limiting magazines to 15 rounds and banning concealed guns in stadiums and on college campuses. meanwhile, in south carolina a state senate committee approved a bill allowing cob sealed guns in bars. republicans in the arizona statehouse introduced a bill that would allow teachers to carry guns in schools, and in wyoming the statehouse just passed a bill that would invalidate a federal ban on assault weapons and charge federal officials trying to enforce the law with
that the nra has become this radicalized extremist organization, so the nra is out there with this big campaign. counter veiling pressure becomes so important which is why i think the battle is still on at the national level. the mayors against illegal guns, gabby giffords' new pact. these are important signs that the nra doesn't represent millions of responsible gun owners. that's why the universal background check seems to me one that is going to have real appeal and has a real possibility at the national level for passage. >> and if you talk about the sort of counter veiling forces against the nra, there is organizing for action that we mentioned. there is also mike bloomberg, e.j., and his super pact, which is pouring $2 million in the race for jesse jackson's now vacated seat and is actually trying to prove the point that, hey, if there is a pro-gun lobby, there is a gun safety lobby that hopefully can be as effective. >> yeah. i mean, those of us that don't like citizens united have our questions about anybody pouring all that money in any ways. however, if you are going to be able to do
is all part of the media's anti-gun agun agenda it's and not fueling the nra president wayne "the pierre" lapierre. >> the media rushes to blame guns. >> stephen: he's right. everyone time is something is shot the media rushes to blame guns. to the media a smoking gun is always a smoking gun. some journalists are so prejudice against guns they've sunk to journalism. [laughter] because there's no national databusiness of shootings they've been tallying the shootings since newtown. it's more than 30 a day. i know that number sounds high but there's only 28 days in february, remember. [ laughter ] in a recent poll 93% of americans favor background checks. we can't trust those 93%. we don't know their background. [laughter] luckily we can fight this will negative reporting about guns and that brings us top tonight's -- brings us to tonight's word: silent but deadly. [cheers and applause] this isn't the first time our second amendment rights have been threatened by fact. in 1993 the jackfood stat titions at the centers for disease control published a study of gun households. now, according t
measures that would ban assault weapons and high-capacity ammo clips. senators who are afraid of the nra or to be polite, concerned over the impact that legislation might have, might heed this warning from comedian chris rock delivered a news conference called by "a demand a plan" advocates. >> the president and the first lady are kind of like the mom and dad of the country. when your dad says something you listen. and when you don't it usually bites you in the ass later on. >> john: but many in the politicians seem more concerned about the nra. thousands turned out to support martin o'malley's proposed gun control plan. including assault weapons and high capacity ammunition clip bans and a new mandate requiring handgun purchasers get their state police license only after fingerprinting, a more exacting new background check and a gun class. now it true that house democrats and republicans are co-sponsoring a bill that would hike penalties for gun trafficking, and maryland democratic congressman elijah cummings says that's progress. >> this is the first time in the house where we have cos
to the beltway audience. >> the nra once supported background checks. >> we think it's reasonable to provide mandatory instant criminal background checks for every sale at every gun show, no loopholes anywhere for anyone. >> america can do this for us. please. >> the ad highlights the nra's slide towards irrationality since law pierre throated his full support for background checks. >> the craziness of the extreme pro-gun lobby has been revealed, and that has got to move the debate. it's got to move the legislation to at least some degree. >> the nra is now revealed as an insan organization, and that matters quite a lot. >> criticism of the nra is no longer the purr view of the "new york times" proving just how exactly they have gotten. the nra executive vice president was called out on fox news sunday. fox news sunday. for his baseless fear of a government gun grab. >> i think they'll turn this universal check on the law-abiding into a universal rebelling industry of law-abiding people, and law-abiding people don't want that. i mean, my god. it's the last thing. >> they absolutely do not. i
it because you want to win, without creating huge enemies who make you want to lose. that is not what the nra boss did. he went after dianne feinstein, who took time today to clarify lapierre's remark. >> we are now facing the single most devastating attack on the second amendment that this country has ever seen. dianne feinstein, herself, commented that she has had her gun ban legislation in her desk for over a year. waiting for the right time to introduce it. really? waiting for an unspeakable act to occur, so the american people could be persuaded to by her political agenda? see, it is not about making our kids or our streets safer. it is all about their decades-old agenda. >> what i said is that we have been working on this for a year. yeah, it is a rather complicated piece of legislation, because it exempts 2200 hunting, sporting weapons, by make and model. and that took some work of staff and consultation with real gun experts to be sure that we could be correct on all counts. so it was not a bill just quickly slapped together. it had some thankful consideration. >> lapierre and the nra
much. the nra took center stage on capitol hill and didn't give much ground. >> law abiding gun owners will not accept blame for the acts of violent or deranged criminals. nor do we believe that government should dictate what we can lawfully own and use to protect our families. >> reporter: it is the influence of wayne lapierre and the national rifle association that makes gun advocates like diane feinstein, to say it will be an uphill battle. >> they come after you, they put together large amounts of money to defeat you. >> reporter: but he is on a mission to convince his colleagues. >> we need to wake members up to the fact if they want to do the right thing and join us on gun reform, there is not a political referendum like maybe a decade or two ago. >> reporter: during the 2010 campaign, the nra flooded the area with ads regarding guns, and sherrod brown, and figures for the nonresponsive politics shows that the nra spent over $4 million on the senate campaigns, losing seven out of eight races where they spent over $100,000. money is not the only way to measure influence. >> i thin
pierre, head of the nra in a moment. first, mark kelly retired astronaut and navy captain and the husband of former congress woman gabby giffords who was shot two years ago. he and his wife launched a new group americans for responsible solutions. start with your are wife's dramatic testimony before a senate committee this week. >> you must act. be bold. be courageous. americans are counting on you. >> chris: how is gabby doing? >> she is doing great, chris. she enjoyed being there in front of the senate. it was a little bit of having her former job back in a sense being on capitol hill. >> chris: letts get to this debate because your wife's shooting raises some of the questions at the core of the gun control controversy. jared lofner had been suspended it from college because of concerns yet he was able to go to a gun store and buy the gun he used to shoot your wife. the question is what good does it do to make more people go through the background checks when loffner with his problems was able to pass a background check? >> that is a good question, chris. he was clearly mentally ill. th
, nra president wayne lapierre insisted universal background checks will not work and claimed the president is against the second amendment. >> during the campaign when he said to people i will not take away your rifle, shotgun, hand gun, they leafletted the country with flyers like this, obama's not going to take your gun, obama will protect gun rights, and now he's trying to take away all three. i don't think you can trust -- >> senate majority leader harry reid says he hopes gun legislation will come out of the judiciary committee but he was noncommittal over whether he would sign an assault weapons ban. >> would you vote for it? >> frankly, she knows, i haven't read her amendment, i didn't vote for the assault weapons last time because it didn't make sense but i'll take a look at it. >> i will bring in "washington post" columnist ruth marcus and senior staff writer for "the hill" alex bolton. good monday morning to both of you. ruth, this is the president's first big sell to the american people. what do you think he needs to say here? >> well, the president said he was goi
the n.r.a. makes, they say, and the supreme court has upheld, there is a constitutional right to bear arms and they say government doesn't have the right to say what kind of gun, how big a magazine, according to the n.r.a. that is tyranny. >>guest: i don't agree. i do agree that every american has the right to own a firearm to protect himself, to protect his family, to protect his property. we are both gun owners. i don't think you will find a person that is a stronger supporter of the second amendment than me. i defended the second amendment with my life over iraq and kuwait. in is not about the 2nd amendment this is about public safety. we have 20 first graders die in class because we do not have sufficient gun violence legislation in the country. in 1934, we band automatic weapons. i would argue that the semi-automatic assault weapon with a high capacity magazine is too dangerous to be on the street where criminals, terrorists, and the mentally ill can get them. >>chris: now, the political reality because you and your wife are starting a political group, the president, obviously, i
